Wow we have been having a fun few days. Saturday we had high wind, the back of one of our stalls was torn apart and the neighbor had a huge storageshed on the back of a flatbed trailer that was picked up and thrown to the ground, not much left of it. Sunday the weather was nice and we spent the day repairing the damage and doing cleanup, the pool had over an inch of dirt in it, leaves to be raked and of course the stall to be repaired. Got up this morning to bone chilling cold then by 9 am it started to rain (snow mixed in) its been the same all day, snow is sticking on the other side of the valley from us. Hard to believe this is Las Vegas, we were still warm last week! The grandkids are hoping for snow next week, Grandmas hoping for hawaii weather (LOL)!

Hope everyone is safe in this crazy weather pattern the country seems to be in.

It has been in the low 80's during the day and mid-40's at night. We are currently just South of Guadalajara in a little town called Villa Corona. We are going to move 3 hours to the Pacific Coast and South of Puerto Vallerta (sp). Temps are Mid-80's and low 70's at night.

Its snowing in Las Vegas/Henderson! Dogs are having the times of their lives playing in the court yard. The backyard is just to slippery around the pool to risk. The road to Boulder City is closed, I-15 is closed at Mountain Pass. The airport is closed because of visability, there is snow on the runways. People are driving like idiots. But we're all home, safe and warm. The winter weather advisory is in effect until 6 a.m.

Cinda I would definitely mount a plow to that T4.

That limo would look cool plowing the snow :D

I am sure George has already entertained the idea! :rolleyes:

We have had a record month and year for snow we had 13" last night and Friday we had 8". We have gotten over 36" in the last 6 weeks. I cant see one of my cars in the back yard. This is just incredible and we are supposed to get another 3" tomorrow. I don't think it will ever quit. I am sure glad I bought a new snow blower last month. I think next year I will get tracks for the Trooper it goes good in snow but I think 6' in the ditches is a bit much.

That is incredible, so much for global warming.

Here in Northern Nevada we have had a little bit less than normal snow pack in the mountains.

The weather has been in the 50's and near 60 degree weather today so it has been great but this is about normal for us.

My son is a doctor in Atlanta and has been freezing his butt off there every time I talk to him. :)

Sounds like you need one of these for off roading.

Here are some pics of the incredible amount of snow we have this year. The Jimmy in one of the pics has 8" of lift and 36" tires if I stand next to it I cant look in the windows and I am 6' tall. Another pic is of a Dodge Daytona and all you can see is the antenna.

She's fair to say that we are having a rip snorter of a summer over here and the grass is a light shade of brown. Didn't really want to tell you how nice it is over this side of the ditch but couldn't contain myself any more. 4x4x454 I do feel for you mate and at times jealous of all that snow but I do understand the extra effort you must have to put into every day just to get though your daily routine. In a short six months you will be as happy as a bull amongst cows while I'll have all the mud and cold to contend with & I don't like thick cold mud that much. I hope that gives you a lift a bit.

Cheers Mike.

When we started getting all the snow I thought it was cool we haven't had much snow in about 12 years just cold. But I am starting to get sick of the wind we get its not so bad for me I live in town but my folks live 12 miles out of town at the lake and the road drifts in every time they plow it. My folks are lucky to get out every 6-10 days. The last time they got out they got stranded and spent the night in their van in a small town and then spent 3 days with us and 3 days with my great aunt before they could get home.

      1 1/2 years ago I was riding along in my 2018 Coleman 550 Outfitter when the CVT belt broken.  Just prior to that I was having some shifting issues that I now understand can be part of the clutch. Finally a few months ago I sent it in to a shop who put in a new belt as well as a new wet clutch (drum, one way bearing, etc and an oil change) He fired it up and it turned on fine, sounded fine and I took it home. It was an auto shop but not a UTV specific shop. So get it home and after a half hour or so it started making some noises with my 10 year old driving it around. I get home and he said theres noises again and I played around a bit. Within a short bit of trying to drive it around I started having noises that I now understand was my One Way Bearing being destroyed. Aka metal noises from the bearing falling apart.   Of course, after the cost of $800 to take it to a shop plus $200 in gas, trailer rental etc to take it in and back (it was a friends shop that was a bit of ad istance) I was quite ticked and pushed the UTV back into my garage and left it for a while.  Then this past weekend i watched a bunch of Youtube videos along with a mechanic friend to pull things apart.  We found the spindle was loose, opened it up further and found the one way bearing fell apart in my hand and the little bearings were already worn, no longer round and this was from less than a hour of use. THerefore leading me to believe it had very quick failure after the new wet clutch was put in.  We looked things to look for damage further.  Nothing really scratched/grooves etc so I ordered a new OEM bearing and we put it in, sealed it back up, followed the specs of everything and was 110% sure we put the One Way Bearing in correctly.    We rode it around for a hour, sounded fine.   Next day used it, sounded fine for a half hour.   Third day I turned it on and let it idle a little bit and found that I was hearing metal scraping again like I did right after getting my utv back from the shop.  Therefore I am 99% certain the One Way Bearing is about to break again (already breaking)   Its a brand new OEM belt.  Nothing looks off on the spindle.   I do not know for sure if the shop touched the inner race for which, in my understanding, the One Way Bearing spins. I know I may be sounding ignorant here.  I am not a mechanic by any means but I have learned a bit with the recent Youtube videos and attempted repairs.  Whatever that "ufo" looking object is, we replaced the bearings (those black things that spin) I replaced the whole "Ufo" lol... as the original had some wear/tear that prevented it from spinning perfect. Nothing currently
      visibly looks off... and the issue is mostly when the machine is more in an idle.  It was at an idle when the One Way Bearing sorta went kaput the last time.  THe noises is at an idle... but if I can get it drive, its fine.  It also affects the ability to shift the gears. 

      I know I will have to replace the One Way Bearing again... I just dont know what might cause the issue that is destroying the bearinga nd so quickly.   Again, this all started when the belt snapped when I was going about 15 mph down a road on a warm day.  It has higher miles.  The wet clutch was in bad shape and its replaced.   The paperwork says "wet clutch assembly kit")   Is there something that the belt can do to cause damage that might not be as visible but would directly create an issue that lets the bearing get ate right up?? Help me!  I hate this machine and I really want it to run well ... so I can sell it and find something else  haha..

      Hey guys,

      While installing the High lifter lift kit in my 2015 Mule 4010 I nicked the piston, strut rod, the shiney rod in the middle that I cant remember the name (no coffee yet this morning). I knew the nick was deep enough to eventually tear up the seal and she'd let loose. Well 3 months or so down the road here we are, its blown out. 
       
      My question is how do I know which strut I have? I see 2 listed in the exploded 45023-1006 and the 45023-7503. The difference is the spring rate or K value. Seeing as I have high lifter springs does it matter the K value? And if that's the case can I use any of the 45023 prefix struts from various other models? 

      Thanks all,
       
      Andrew
